Looks as Though No Agree
ment Would Be Reached
War Seems Certain over
the Division of Turkey
London, Dec. 3. While Turkey and
the llulknn allies still hesitate on the
brink of an armstlce today with a
growing probability that no agree
ment will be reached, British dip
lomats are far more gravely con
cerned over the Increasing danger that
Europe Is to be Involved In. war over
a division of the bkUb to be reft
from tho sultan.
Sluir) upon the heels of Chancellor
Yon Iletlinmnn-Hollwegs Jingo speech
1n the (icrinan Reichstag, Austria, the
Kaiser's ally, Is quoted today as
threatening that a division of hor forc
es, mobilized ut Senilln, Hungary, will
move at once Into Servla If, as Is
expected, Consul Edl reports that Ser
vian troops maltreated or Insulted
Austrlans after the fall of Prlsnmd.
This would mean war, and It Is be
lieved certain that Russia, which Is
reported to have 500,000 men already
In Poland, would attack Austria the
moment an Austrian soldier crossed
the Servian border.
Iliiuiiianla Causes Trouble.
The Injection of Itself Into the al
ready muddled situation of Roumanla
Is also causing the graveBt anxiety.
The visit today of the crown prince
cf Roumanla to Berlin and his expec
. ted liitervlew-4morrow with the Ger
man foreign minister are considered
here as a certain Indication that the
Kaiser and his allies Italy and Aus
triahave made plans to cover all
eventualities. It Is strongly suspect
ed In military quarters that It Is
planned that Roumanla, If an Europ
ean war seems unavoidable, will be
cast In the role of an aggressor
against Bulgaria. Then If Russia
comes to the aid of her ally, Austria
and Germany might take a hand In
the struggle without openly Incurring
the onus of starting hostilities.
What position England and France
would take In the struggle Is still in
doubt. Trance, It Is clearly shown,
desires to avoid being embroiled.
British counsels, bo far, have also
been pacific, but it Is by no means
clear that the understanding between
the Triple entente would not prove
strong enough to put both French and
English armies in the field if the test
of battle really comas..
Owe Flatly KcfimPs
Greece's refusal to sign the peace
protocol, which came today on def
inite instructions from Athens to the
Greek envoy Is admitted to have made
more serious the situation which al
The refusal of the other Balkan
states to act without Greece and the
evident determination that they stand
together Is admitted to have greatly
strengthened Serrvia's hand. It prac
tically disposes of reports that fric
tion existed between the little king
doms which have broken Turkey's
Power In Europe, and makes It more
than probable that In a general con
vulsion Russia and Sorvla could de
pend on their active support as
"gainst Germany, Austria, Itlay and
It is generally declared in the Ser
vlo clubs here that unless Austria
and Servla can compose their differ
ences within a few days the chances
of a peace protocol being signed with
Turkey are remote.
Austria Iluntliiir Trouble
Adding to the serious aspect of the
situation are reports of the gravely
'"'stile attitude toward Servla which
prevails In Austria, Today dispatches
sa'. the Budapest Dlrlar, a newspa
per, openly demands that the king of
Servla be compelled to appear in full
regalia before the Austrian legation at
Belgrade, and there publicly express
his regret for the alleged insults to
Consul Prochaska at Prlsrend, and
niake promises to punish the guilty.
Tnls proposal, It is believed here, Is
based upon the desire to demand from
Sorvla Impossible conditions, and the
determination, when prompt refusal Is
received, to proceed to war.
That Russia la bv no means averse
to a test of strength is Indicated in
dispatches from Cologne. The Cologne
Cajette, which heretofore ha couted

today. He took luncheon with

confer with Foreign
Klderlln-Waerchter regarding the

San Francisco, Dec. 3. Loading
physicians here today were rnther dif
fident about commenting on the re
port that Dr. Frederick Franz Freld
man, of Berlin, has discovered a cure
for tuberculosis, preferring to await
the opinion of the principal medical
Journals before committing them
Dr. Wlnslow Anderson said: "We
can only hope that It Is true. There
have been numerous announcements
of cures for tuberculosis, of which
nothing further was heard. It Is only
natural to Incline toward Bkeptlclsm
until absolute proofs are submitted.''
Dr. M. F. McNutt declared it best to
reserve Judgment until positive proofs
have been submitted., and then be pre
pared for disappointment.
Dr. Julius Rosenstlrn suggested that
the reports of the leading scientific
Journals be awaited before accepting
the story of the discovery. A similar
opinion was expressed by Dr, F. W.

Washington, Dec. 3. "I thought the
people had disposed of Roosevelt and
Taft. They have been retired to pri
vate life. I see no use of havlngg them
as members of the house, to continue
airing their scraps here."
Tills was the declaration of Repre
sentative John J. Fitzgerald, of New
York, when Informed that the first
draft of the legislative, executive
and judicial bill, drawn by a sub-coni-mlttee,
contained a provision making
former presidents life members of the
house of representatives at an annual
salary of $17,500. The full commit
tee undoubtedly (will eliminate the
provision of the bill.
